Even though she didn't formally endorse him prior to the election, Palin called Scott Brown to congratulate him and posted on her facebook page:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin placed a phone call to Sen.-elect Scott Brown on Tuesday night to congratulate the Republican on his upset victory in Massachusetts's special Senate election.
"Gov. Palin spoke with a very happy Sen.-elect Brown this evening and congratulated him on his most historic victory for not only Massachusetts but the nation," Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton told POLITICO.
In an appearance on Fox News after The Associated Press called the election for Brown, Palin hailed the Republican's win as "a step for taking our country back."
"This is a referendum on all those things that President Obama has been standing for," the 2008 vice presidential candidate told Fox's Greta Van Susteren. "It was many different factors all coming together — and thank God for that, I think a lot of the people will say, because this is a step for taking our country back."
Asked by Van Susteren to explain why she did not formally endorse Brown before the election, Palin praised Brown's campaign for relying on "shoe leather" campaigning instead of national surrogates.
"I would have" endorsed him, she said, "if he had requested it."
In a posting on her Facebook page, Palin added: "Americans cheered for Scott Brown’s underdog campaign because they viewed his candidacy as a vote against the Democrats' health care bill. You know that there's something wrong with this legislation when opposition to it inspired a Republican victory in a state that currently has no Republicans in Congress and last sent a Republican to the Senate nearly 40 years ago."
